Lagos Floods: Lekki residents are the brunt of the joke again

flood

In what has gradually become an expected pattern to see videos and pictures of flooded streets in Lagos anytime the rainy season makes an appearance, it is no surprise that after the torrential rain on Sunday and this morning, Lagosians are complaining.

Alongside those videos, residents are known to make incessant protests on social media as they make their way out and about on the streets of Lagos.

Lagos, a coastal city in the South Western geopolitical zone of Nigeria, is known to be flooded every time it rains especially in areas like the Lekki Penninsula and other regions on Lagos Island and Victoria Island. 

 

It has now become a noticeable trend for Twitter users to make jokes at the expense of residents of those areas specifically known for their bad drainage system.

 

Many vented their frustrations on the Lagos Government and questioned why the Government was yet to put in place an efficient drainage system in the State.

 

The decision of the Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ban Okadas late last year was also brought up again. Lagosians are questioning the rationale behind banning a major means of transport in spite of a defective drainage system in the state.

 

They’ve also taken to their timelines to warn others about proceeding out of their houses, announcing that if they were to indeed venture out, they should be sure to ride out in canoes, boats, and their swimming trunks.
